Today's showcased sewing tutorial is such a unique, fun idea - cushions (throw pillows) that are designed to look like luggage tags. Made from map fabric and hessian (burlap), they have a definite vintage charm.
Claire, from Pillar Box Blue, shows how to make her fun luggage tag cushions. The detailed tutorial gives instructions on how to personalise each cushion, as well as adding grommets. Included in the post are links to several map crafts. Of course, you could make them in any fabric, but they do look great with the map fabric combined with hessian (burlap).
In Australia, and I think the U.K., pillows are something we rest our heads on while sleeping. Cushions, such as these luggage tag ones, are found on lounges, chairs and sofas.
In other parts of the world, throw pillows seem to be the equivalent of cushions, although they are sometimes referred to as pillows.
My American and Canadian friends, how do you differentiate between pillows for sleeping and pillows used on a lounge or chair?
Claire added her luggage tag cushions to the Pillows & Cushions link party. You might like to check out the following projects at the Pillows & Cushions linky...
